Our citrus trees are almost ripe, thus here begins the first of many holiday citrus recipes! So, I know that mojitos are considered warm weather drinks, and not something you share around the Thanksgiving table, but when the limes are ripe (and our friend Sam has mint in his garden to spare), mojitos are welcome in November in this house.


8 mint leaves plus more for garnish1 T brown sugar
1 lime
2 1/2 jiggers of dark rum
Splash of seltzer


In a glass, muddle the mint leaves, half the lime, and the sugar in a glass. Add the rest of the juice from the remaining half of the lime, pour in rum, add ice to fill the glass, and top with seltzer. Add a sprig of mint leaves for garnish, and pretend like it’s summer!
